My name is Stefania. I am a 'Lucchese' businesswoman, I live about 500 meters from the holiday home and I am available to give all informations to my guests.
Stefania purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Stefania chose Capannori
I love this property because when I was a child this property was a farm and I spent a lot of time in this house with my family. On this farm there were cows, hens, rabbits and many other animals. This holdiay house is ideal for families with children and for tourists with dogs because the garden of 5000 square meters is flat and it is completely fenced. The metal fence of the garden is about 1.70 high. high.
What makes this Villa unique
Holiday villa 'Pennecchio' is a Tuscan holiday farmhouse on the outskirts of Lucca, at San Colombano, a typical Tuscan village situated along the slopes of the hills of Lucca, and is surrounded by age-old olive groves. The recently restored farmhouse set along a hillside overlooking the plain of Lucca is, without doubt, the perfect spot for those wishing to spend their holidays amongst enchanting countryside whilst still being able to enjoy the benefits of all the latest mod.cons. The farmhouse is the ideal setting for family holidays, and is also suitable for groups, couples, sports enthusiasts, lovers of nature and all those who enjoy a healthy lifestyle and adventure holidays.

Amazing week away!
Sefania has made this property so beautiful and pictures do not do this justice.
The garden and views are amazing and the house was exactly what we needed.
Peaceful,l and quiet location but with great access to all areas we needed.
Stefania was a fantastic host!
The only down side was the weather which was it of anyone’s control!
I will definitely be coming back to this fantastic find!
Picture Perfect in Tuscany
We had a beautiful week in Stefania's lovely holiday villa. Everything was as promised. It is a great place to relax and from which to take day trips, which we did about half the time. We loved snipping rosemary from the bushes and adding it to our omelettes. Other foods were readily available at the Esselunga (supermarket). We were glad we had GPS for navigating, although after a few days we sort of had a feel of which way to go when. We had planned on having two full bathrooms, but the shower in the ground floor bathroom was really too small to turn around in, so we all used the bathroom upstairs for showers. Since we could only shower one at a time anyway (there was plenty of hot water, and water pressure was good, but the water temp would change unexpectedly if a second faucet was in use), that was okay. And we were unsuccessful in using the outdoor grill, but agreed with Stefania that we probably should not have tried to use charcoal left by previous tenants, since it probably had too much moisture from all the humidity. (So -- get yourselves a fresh bag of charcoal!)
A real highlight for me was just walking around the expansive grounds, viewing the olive trees and, through the fence, the next-door vineyard. The mountains and sunsets were stunning too. Stefania keeps the property and the house in beautiful condition, and she is very accommodating in answering questions and providing what you need -- she is a fine host.
We stayed for four weeks. The property is comfortable, well equipped and pleasantly presented. It is also very well kept. The area is very tranquil, and allows the sort of relax one looks out for his holiday. The views are brilliant, and we enjoyed our sunset dinners looking at fascinating colours and views. The owner, Stefania, lives nearby, and is very helpful, efficient and welcoming with her friendly approach. One couldn't ask for more. Capannori is also ideal to discover the region, the nearly magnificent villas, the world famous versilia coast, and of course Florence. But we enjoyed immensely discovering Lucca, beautiful, full of surprises, and makes for excellent shopping and dining out. For dog owners, the huge garden is a haven, absolutely safe and escape proof. Wonderful for the peace of mind of dog owners. Brilliant. A presto Stefania.
Lovely house in great surroundings, large clean swimming pool, good outdoor eating area.
Our stay was spoilt by the weather. Only 4 days of sun in 2 weeks. Owner very easy to get on with...happy to help at all times.. definetly need a car as no supermarket or small shops to hand.
Kitchen could better equipped with more bowls and mugs. All pillows rather hard and we felt each bed should have at least 2.
We enjoyed our stay..visited the hills,lovely Lucca and by train to a very busy Florence .
Wonderful views and a lovely garden perfectly located for trips to Lucca and elsewhere
We spent a very happy week at this charming property at the beginning of September. The owner, Stefania, gave us a warm welcome, showing us round and giving us lots of useful tips - she'd also been great about answering questions by email before we arrived. The spacious garden, large swimming pool and generous outside seating area are truly exceptional - and, for us, a perfect setting for a sunny, Tuscan holiday. Thank you, Stefania, for everything - we'll be back!
Beautiful Tuscan Villa
We had a fantastic time in this beautiful, traditional villa. Our children loved playing in the pool and large garden. We had lunches and dinners out in the pergola and enjoyed the wonderful views over to Lucca and the mountains. The highlight of our trip was the restaurant Stefania recommended about 5 minutes drive from the villa - fantastic food, great value and breathtaking views. We will definitely be back again!
This holiday Villa is situated to the north of hills of Lucca in a small village called S.Colombano.
This area has a wealth of beautiful ancient villas as Villa Manzi, Villa Torrigiani, Villa Reale and Villa Grabau etc, which were once the home of the nobility of Lucca. All villas are open to the public. (Check opening times)
A panoramic road known as the 'Strada del Vino' ('Wine Route') runs through past many local villages and farmhouse estate where visitors can buy the best local oil and wine.
Near this village there are some very good restaurants, banks and a chemist in Segromigno in Monte, near 2 kilometres from my holiday Villa.
A supermarket is about 3 kilometres from my holiday Villa in Marlia where you can find all you need.
The tourists can buy the very special olive oil.
